Summary

Black+Decker BXPW1800XE Review

The Black+Decker BXPW1800XE is a very popular, well known and sturdy corded electric pressure washer which really comes in handy for your everyday pressure washing needs. This pressure washer delivers a very respectable 135 bar max pressure and a perfectly respectable flow rate of 440l/h. These performance features along with the numerous attachments, which are included as standard with this pressure washer, really do make this product by Black+Decker stand out from the crowd. These features include, but are not limited to, a patio cleaner, triangle brush, rotary nozzle and many more, all of which I will discuss in more detail later on in this review.

Main Features

  • Pressure (bar): 135
  • Flow rate (l/h): 440
  • Power Rating (watts): 1800
  • Area Performance (m²/h): 60
  • Weight (kg): 10.8 Gross
  • Dimensions – L x W x H (mm): ‎390 x 312 x 735

Weight

Having the reassurance that you can easily lift and transport your pressure washer to those harder to reach areas is in my opinion of great importance. It is therefore reassuring to know that Black+Decker have really taken this into account and ensured that this pressure washer is not too heavy, weighting in at only 10.8kg. This, although not the lightest pressure washer on the market, ensures that performance is not being compromised, allowing the operator to clean as effectively and quickly as possible.

When comparing the weight to other Black+Decker pressure washers it is important to note that the younger brother model (BXPW1600PE) is in fact slightly lighter weighting in at only 7.21kg. As mentioned previously the lighter weight of the younger brother does compromise on a slightly reduced bar pressure, but an increase in manoeuvrability may be more important, especially for operators with potential back problems or elderly users.

Power / Bar Pressure

Black+Decker BXPW1800XE Review

This Black+Decker BXPW1800XE pressure washer comes equipped with a 1800 watt motor that has the ability of producing 135 bar, which is perfectly sufficient for domestic pressure washing tasks. These performance specifications make this pressure washer perfect for eliminating tough everyday dirt and grime from your garden furniture and patio, leaving them sparkly clean and looking as good as new. It must be said though that this bar pressure and power output is certainly not comparable to that of a top range pressure washer, although we can see this greatly reflected in its lower price point. This is a budget friendly pressure washer which is certainly not aimed at the commercial market, but is perfect for the everyday user like me and you who do not require such great power and pressure.

Hose Flow Rate

This Black+Decker pressure washer is supplied with an 6 metre hose length and a flow rate of 440 LPH, which seems to be consistent even with the larger brother of this pressure washer, the BXPW2200PE, in which we do not see any increase in hose flow rate. If you are looking for a pressure washer with a much higher flow rate, Black+Decker have you covered with the the BLACK+DECKER BXPW2500DTS. Although having a 6-metre hose length does allow the operator some freedom of movement of the gun and lance away from the unit, users with extra-large gardens or hard to reach areas may find this length slightly on the shorter side. You may find yourself having to constantly move the unit itself which may be frustrating. Also, no extension hose is offered with this pressure washer, which can be seen in some other well-known competitive brands such as the WILKS USA range. Having said that, for those of us who have smaller to medium sized gardens I have not found this length to be an issue at all.

Accessories and Use

Black+Decker BXPW1800XE Review

The Black+Decker BXPW1800XE comes included with a long list of accessories – perfect for all your cleaning needs. These include …

  • A versatile patio cleaner which is equipped with a high power rotary brush, allowing for effective cleaning of not only patios but also pool edges, balconies, verandas etc.
  • A fixed triangle brush which has soft bristles, making it perfect for cleaning cars and motorbikes and restoring that sparkly shine without the risk of damaging any paintwork.
  • A gun with safety catch which also has a total stop system upon releasing the trigger, helping to prolong the life of the pressure washer and reduce unnecessary water wastage.
  • A high pressure lance which has been effectively designed to connect easily to the nozzles and the gun, improving user convenience.
  • 1x rotary jet wash nozzle which ensures maximum pressure and power for those really tough to clean and stubborn regions of moss or dirt.
  • 1x adjustable jet wash nozzle which can be twisted altering the pressure and intensity of the clean, allowing the operator full control over the pressure washer and hence greatly increasing its versatility.
  • 1x foam lance bottle and foaming nozzle which can be filled with detergent, perfect for achieving that deep sparkly clean of the car/ motorbike.

Practicalities and Design

It appears that ease of transportation and practicality in terms of storage has been a key aspect which Black+Decker have focused on in the design of this pressure washer. Coming standard with 17.5 cm diameter wheels really does allow this pressure washer to be easily transported over almost any terrain which comes in its way. This along with an ergonomic handle provides the operator with a secure point to safety lift the pressure washer should this be necessary such as into a car or onto a shelf.

Another great positive of this Black+Decker BXPW1800XE is the abundance of included accessories, which come as standard. This washer comes included with 8 accessories straight out of the box, which really does help to provide the operator with lots of versatility and the ability to get the most cleaning functions out of one pressure washer. This is a real advantage as it allows the user to maximise their garden cleaning abilities without the need to purchase extra add on attachments, which can become costly, and is commonly seen with other competitive pressure washer brands.

Along with providing all of these standard accessories Black+Decker have also carefully designed the pressure washer unit to store all of these parts on the unit itself. This not only reduces the risk of losing potentially vital cleaning attachments, but also aids in the reduction of storage required. If you are anything like me, this is a vital feature as the shed or garage can become a real mess! Continuing on the point of ease of storage, this pressure washer also comes equipped with on board integrated hose reel. This ensures that no loose cables and hoses are laying loose, not only minimising space, but also reducing the risk of a potential trip hazard waiting to happen.

Lastly, another key feature of this pressure washer is its ability to draw water from a static water source due to the self-priming function, so does not always need to be connected to a hose pipe. This is a real benefit especially for the more environmentally conscious users, but also if there is a potential hose pipe ban. This feature will ensure the user can still maintain a clean tidy and dirt-free garden by drawing water from a standing water source such as bucket, water butt or pond etc.

Should You Buy This Model?

Black+Decker BXPW1800XE Review

This Black+Decker BXPW1800XE pressure washer strikes a perfect balance between affordability, performance and versatility. The fact that so many accessories are included as standard really does mean that the user can make the most out of this product straight out of the box. This along with the adjustable spray nozzle ensures the operator has total control over their pressure washing experience and really puts them in the driving seat in terms of their pressure washing needs and the results they achieve.

If you are looking for a pressure washer which does not break the bank, but still provides a perfectly adequate power output and flow rate, which is certainly sufficient enough for your everyday pressure washing tasks in and around the garden, then this certainly is the pressure washer for you.

Another real benefit of this pressure washer is that reassurance behind the global Black+Decker brand. Purchasing from such a well-known and well respected brand in the tool and garden equipment sector, really does provide us with the confidence needed in terms of build quality and reliability, something which cannot be said for some less well-known brands of pressure washer.
